This lesson will demonstrate how to configure assessments to include sub skills. This process is necessary to visualize DnA assessments on the same chart under a Parent Assessment. Creating a single chart for an Assessment View allows a visualization for overall performance, and then can be drilled into via Subskills to see individual assessment performance.
Where to Start
- Go to System Configurations.
- Select Assessments.
- Search for an Assessment Group to configure.
- Select the Assessment tab.
- Select Manage Assessments.
If an Assessment Group has not already been created, select Add on the right hand side of the list.
Create a Parent Assessment
- Select New.
- Enter the parent Assessment Name.
- Each Parent Assessment is charted separately
- Select a content Category.
- Select an Assessment Type.
- Select Save Assessment.
Add any additional assessments as needed. All subskill assessments should reflect the assessments within an assessment view in DnA.
- Set the Calculation of the Parent Assessment to Average (AVG).
- Use the Parent Name column to select the Parent assessment for each subskill assessment.
- Any assessment not tied to a Parent Assessment is charted individually
After this configuration is completed, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org as the data file will need to be rerun to view the data with the new grouping.
